O Nebî (Prophet)! Say to those of the captives who are in your hands: “If Allah knows any good in your hearts, He will give to you better than that which has been taken away from you and He will forgive you”. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
And if they would betray you, they indeed betrayed Allah before. So He gave (you) some means against them. And Allah is All-Knowing and All-Wise.
Verily those who believed (who wished to reach Allah before death) and emigrated and struggle on the Way of Allah with their property and their souls (lives) in the Way of Allah and those who gave shelter and helped (them), these are friends of one another. And you owe no duty of protection to them until they emigrate. But if they seek your help in religion, it is your duty to help them except against a people with whom you have a covenant (a treaty). And Allah is All-Seeing of what you do.
And those who disbelieve, they are the friends to each other. If you do not do it (if you do not become friends of one another) there will be in the land Fitnah and a great mischief.
And those who believed (became âmenû, wished to reach Allah before death) and emigrated and struggle hard in the Way of Allah, as well as those who gave (them) shelter and helped, these are the true believers. For them is forgiveness and a generous sustenance.
And those who believed (became âmenû) afterwards and emigrated and struggled hard along with you (in the Way of Allah), they are of you. But kindred by blood (relatives) are nearer to one another in the Book of Allah. Verily, Allah is the All-Knowing of everything.
